IT has recently been shown that antagonistic interaction, takes place when schistosome, strigeid or plagiorchiid sporocysts occur together with certain echinostome rediae in the same snail1. This interaction results in the total elimination of the first three groups of parasites. This communication discusses the antagonistic interaction between sporocysts of Schistosoma mansoni Sambon and rediae of an unidentified Echinostoma species in the snail Australorbis glabratus (Say).
